(In keeping with the spirit of the holidays we're dedicating our weekly WWW to great sites/causes for the month of December.)
Who isn't a little short on cash these days? But we still all have the same 24 hours in the day. And while it can seem that our own schedules could make volunteering for non-profits difficult, this week's website of the week certainly makes it easier.
VolunteerMatch.org does just what its name implies: it works as a clearinghouse, allowing you to find the perfect volunteer opportunity for you, in a fraction of the time of trying to hunt one down via the newspaper, word of mouth, etc. A quick local search (no login needed to search) brought back a wide range of opportunities from nationwide organizations like the Red Cross, to local library opportunities. Big and small opportunities await!
